Easter egg hop

Well here we are at the last day of March and we have made it though the first week of this lockdown. On Saturday I couldn't settle and so in the afternoon I sorted out more of my embroidery threads, winding them onto bobbins in one of my new organisers. Sunday I was feeling much better and we had a lovely day. We had a late lunch delivered from the local pub, bottle of wine and then watched a film. It is good to support local businesses that are trying to keep themselves going.  I think a lot of people are having up and down days. 

Yesterday I was feeling positive and decided that has to be the way forward. I did a little cleaning, then the ironing, had homemade soup for lunch and then we went for a walk. When we got home I went in the craftroom to make this Easter card.  We have an order at our local butcher and farm shop to collect this morning so we will be stocked with plenty of meat in the freezer and some fresh veg, milk and bread. I will be back in the craftroom this morning to get some more things made.

Today is the last day of the LOTV half price sale. I used one of the new coloured simply prints and a sentiment along with MFT sweet sunshine papers. I used Lawn Fawn stitched rectangle and puffy clouds border die, Memory Box clouds and a MFT stitched sun die. The ribbon I bought in America.

Stay home, stay cheerful and stay safe x.

Aww so sweet Marianne, it's a lovely image and your papers and embellishments are so pretty, a super layout too.
You are so right, it's such a worrying time and folks are bound to be up and down, it's natural in times of crisis. I try to remain positive and find things to laugh at, well I live with Alistair that's a laugh in it's self. Take care, Kate x

A very cute bunny and love the papers too. A pretty card.
I think we are very lucky, having hobbies to turn to in this awful time. My mojo goes in and out but try to fill each day with different things. Safety is my priority. Hugs, Carol S.xx
